Lightroom Render Intent

Lightroom Render Intent

Is good to use if you have alot of bright saturated colours.

If “Perceptual” is not the option to use, the “Relative” will produce more accurate prints.


Below is an extract from the LR3.2 help library:

Perceptual rendering tries to preserve the visual relationship between colours.
Colours that are in-gamut may change as out-of-gamut colors are shifted to reproducible colours.
Perceptual rendering is a good choice when your image has many out-of gamut colors.


Relative rendering preserves all in-gamut colors and shifts out-of gamut colors to the closest reproducible color.
The Relative option preserves more of the original color and is a good choice when you have few out-of-gamut colors.
